  4. 4. Different Types of Power Plants Steam Power Plants Gas Power Plants use fuels such as petroleum, coal, or biomass. They are burned to heat water use fuels that are burned to to create steam. The pressure of the create hot gases to spin the steam spins a turbine, turning the turbine. copper wire inside the generator.

Wind Power Plants Geothermal Power Plants use the wind to push against the turbine are steam power plants blades, spinning the that tap into steam copper wires inside the released from the earth. generator to create an Once used the water is electric current. returned to the ground. Hydroelectric Dams use falling (or flowing) water to spin the turbine blades.
  6. 6. Coal Plants* Fossil Fuel Power Plants burn coal to drive a steam engine. burn oil to drive a steam engine. *Alabama gets 55.4% of its electricity from coal
  7. 7. Nuclear Power Plants Nuclear generators use nuclear fission to turn water into steam. This drives the steam turbine, which spins a generator to produce power. A pound of highly enriched uranium can power a nuclear submarine or nuclear aircraft carrier and is equal to something on the order of a million gallons of gasoline.

How to Make Nuclear Power When atoms split—or This energy is fission— A nuclear released in the they form of heat. power plant produce As the atom uses this large fragments hit heat to other atoms, amounts of produce they also split, energy, whic electricity. producing h is called more heat. nuclear energy.
  9. 9. Nuclear Power is… Safe and Secure Safety is the TOP Priority of the U.S. Nuclear Industry. Their obligation is to take every precaution to protect the health and safety of their employees, the public, and the environment.
  10. 10. Nuclear energy is secure*. In 2002, a 2 day national security simulation in Washington, D.C., was conducted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and concluded nuclear plants ―are probably our best defended targets,‖ with the industry spending $1.2 billion in security since September 11, 2001. *The NRC holds Nuclear Power Plants to the HIGHEST security standards of ANY American Industry.
  11. 11. Clean Nuclear energy is an environmentally clean option to produce electricity. It produces no harmful greenhouse gases suspected to cause global warming, and no gases that could cause ground- level ozone formation, smog, or acid rain.
  12. 12. Emission-Free Nuclear power already accounts for 73% of the nation’s emission-free electricity. Alternative renewable energy sources are important, but can only take us so far. Wind and solar can be unreliable and geothermal power isn’t well-suited for all locations. The other major sources of emission-free electricity provided in the U.S. are: hydroelectric plants –6.6% wind energy – 0.4% solar energy –0.01%.
  13. 13. Affordable and Reliable Rising energy costs is a concern for every American. Nuclear Nuclear power has the lowest energy is an affordable and production cost of the major reliable economic choice for sources of electricity. electricity. Nuclear plants are one of the most reliable sources on the electricity grid, and their costs are more predictable than many other energy sources.
  14. 14. Innovative Nuclear Technology improves the quality of life for Americans: Many nations around the world depend on nuclear energy today. • America was one of the first countries to realize the benefits of nuclear energy. We are • In 2005, a total of 16 countries relied on the cutting edge of innovation. One out of on nuclear energy for at least 25 % of every 3 people hospitalized derive benefits their total electricity needs. from nuclear procedures. • For example, France, generated 76 % • Nuclear technologies help to make food and of its electricity from nuclear energy. water safer. It holds promise as a reliable means of producing potable water from seawater; a process known as desalination.

  16. 16. Types of Nuclear Power Plants Commercial nuclear power plants in the United States are either boiling water reactors (BWR) or pressurized water reactors (PWR). Boiling Water Reactors (BWR) BWRs heat the water surrounding the nuclear fuel directly into steam in the reactor vessel. Pipes carry steam directly to the turbine, which drives the electric generator to produce electricity.
  17. 17. Approximately 2/3 of the 104 reactors in the United States are Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR). Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR) PWRs heat the water surrounding the nuclear fuel, but keep the water under pressure to prevent it from boiling. The hot water is pumped from the reactor vessel to a steam generator. There, the heat from the water is transferred to a second, separate supply of water. This water supply boils to make steam. The steam spins the turbine, which drives the electric generator to produce electricity.
  18. 18. Hatch Nuclear Plant (BWR) Baxley, GA Plant Hatch was Georgia’s first Nuclear powered electric generating plant. Construction began in 1968. Unit 1 was commercially operating in 1975 followed by Unit 2 in 1979. It has supplied an average of more than 8% of Georgia’s total electricity needs since it began operating in 1975.
  19. 19. Plant Hatch was the first BWR in the United States to receive NRC approval for a new extended license. This was done in January 2002 and will allow them to operate an additional 20 years. Plant Hatch has the capacity to produce up to 1,848 KW of electric power.
  20. 20. Farley Nuclear Plant (PWR) Dothan, AL Construction began in 1970. Unit 1 achieved commercial operation in December 1977 and Unit 2 in July 1981. The plant is powered by 2 Westinghouse Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR) and each unit is capable of generating 888 megawatts (MW) for a total of 1,776 MW. Farley generates 19% of Alabama Power’s electricity
  21. 21. Approximately 800 people are needed to operate Plant Farley, twenty-four hours a day. This includes Engineers, Mechanics, Control Room Operators, Lab Technicians, I & C Control Technicians, Electricians, Security Officers, and many others. Farley uses approximately 400 of its 1,850 acres to accommodate 2 reactors, 6 cooling towers, state- of-the-art control room, turbine building, low- voltage and high-voltage switchyards, training facilities, and a visitor center open to tour groups year-round.
  22. 22. Vogtle Nuclear Plant (PWR) Waynesboro, GA Georgia’s second nuclear plant planning began in 1971. Unit 1 achieved commercial operation in 1987, followed by Unit 2 in 1989. The plant’s 3,100 acre site along the Savannah River, became the largest construction project EVER in Georgia. At the peak of construction, more than 14,000 people worked to build the 2 electric generating units at Plant Vogtle.
  23. 23. Plant Vogtle sends millions of Kilowatts of electricity to destinations all across the region, providing enough energy to power approximately 600,000 homes, and they expect the number to increase.

  25. 25. Top 10 facts About Nuclear Energy #1 There are 104 commercial nuclear power plants producing 20% of all electricity and over 70% of the emission-free electricity generated in the United States. The plants are located at 64 sites in 31 states.
  26. 26. #2 More than 400 nuclear power plants worldwide produce 16% of the world’s electricity, while reducing CO2 emissions by more than 2 billion metric tons per year.
  27. 27. #3 Nuclear energy supplies electricity each year to serve 60 million homes. #4 Nuclear energy has one of the lowest environmental impacts of any electricity source. For example, a wind farm would need 235 square miles to produce the same amount of electricity as a 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plant.
  28. 28. #5 Nuclear energy is by far the nation’s largest source of electricity that does not emit any controlled air pollutants. It provides 73% of the electricity from all carbon-free sources, including hydroelectric, wind and solar. #6 Nuclear power plants provide low-cost, predictable power at stable prices, and are essential in maintaining the reliability of the U.S. electric power system.
  29. 29. #7 Nuclear power plants are able to produce an abundant and low cost energy source because they use an enriched form of uranium for fuel.
  30. 30. #8 The economic activity of a U.S. nuclear plant generates, on average, around $20 million in state and local tax revenues. #9 You would have to live near a nuclear power plant for over 2,000 years to get the same amount of radiation exposure that you get from a single diagnostic medical x-ray.
  31. 31. #10 There are nearly 100 different nuclear medicine imaging procedures available today. An estimated 10 to 12 million nuclear medicine imaging and therapeutic procedures are performed each year in the United States.
